[Meme]Waiting on Wednesday [#43]




Title: Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes #1)
Author: Sara Raasch
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Expected Publication Date: October 14, 2014


A heartbroken girl. A fierce warrior. A hero in the making.
Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now, the Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.
Orphaned as an infant during Winter’s defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee, raised by the Winterians’ general, Sir. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather — she would do anything to help her kingdom rise to power again.
So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter’s magic, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she’s scaling towers, fighting enemy soldiers, and serving her kingdom just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn't go as planned, and Meira soon finds herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics – and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own (goodreads).


I've been in a high fantasy mood lately, and I also love stories that deal with a struggling class system! Plus I've heard a LOT of good things about this one from people who read the ARC so I'm excited! 

What are you waiting on?

  2. I love the cover on this one, but I'm not really a high fantasy reader, so unsure that I'll read it.

    1. Ah, yes it sounds like it wouldn't be your cup of tea if you're not a fan of High Fantasy. I enjoy it from time to time, I like to escape the real world!

  3. I want to read this book. But I don't end up in the high fantasy mood that easily. I have to really really be in the mood. LOL. But I have had my eye on it nonetheless.
